|Ruth E. Walker, Seraphim Writer, Art Waves #162|
Ruth E. Walker believes the job of a writer in any society is simply to write, because a good writer reflects a society back to itself. Walker's first novel, Living Underground, is being released by Seraphim Editions this month. The story of a teenaged girl and the relationship she forms with her family's enigmatic German tennant certainly fits that description. Tune in for a reflective hour.
